damn, that seems like such a hassle of a job. Looks great tho. Any other big plans to it?

Thanks again, and yeah i wanted to get it on that night because whenever i had seen cops around i had always pushed the clutch in, haha. I didn't want to get a noise citation. And it's definitely present when you get on it and there is a noticeable amount of power gain which is always quite nice :)

Well, i didn't mind doing it. After what i went through with my first RS i felt as if the only way i could "get revenge" for sake of a better term, with driving i needed have an RS back on the road. Nothing else would work.

Plus i had the time, and it' all very simple. The way i see it, it's just practice for a swap that i plan on doing (which are my big plans).

I'd say if someone wanted me to rewire and drop an entire drivetrain into their car, i could have it done in less than 24 hours.

Also other big plans... i just really want to get that quarter panel fixed as well as paint the bumper.. sadly they cost money and i am running out of money i can spend on my RS quickly, as i know we all are :P
